OffiCenters Monthly Newsletter 
Featuring Opportunities for Creative Collaboration 

Notes From Lori
A very Happy New Year to everyone in our OffiCenter Community! Our team wishes you nothing but great success and good health in 2018 and, like always, are here to help you build your businesses. We are kicking off the New Year with great news for our members: Woodbury OffiCenter is set to open sometime in March! Now, every member will have a St. Paul location as one of their 6 spaces to WORK AWESOME. This is especially meaningful to me as I was born and raised in St. Paul and still live on the east side of the river. I'm looking forward to a 5-minute commute. And, speaking of working awesome,  If you haven't stopped in to see the new Union Plaza remodel, now is the perfect time. I am so proud to offer you a great and expanded CoWorking space in the North Loop. 

January also begins a new partnership with Women In Networking, as we will host their monthly WINspired luncheons at Minnetonka OffiCenter. Teresa Thomas is bringing a new interactive format where you will be invited to participate in a facilitated conversation allowing the group to explore topics in a fun and collaborative way. The first speaker/discussion leader will bring a lot to the table as the topics center on changing and reaching goals for the New Year. By the way, the first thought leader is ME! After 37 years in business, I will have many insights on change and leaving your comfort zone. Join us on January 17! Teresa is giving all of our members special pricing for the event. Use the code work awesome for $20 the non-member price. Also, this month, we will host our bi-monthly France UnCorked. This is a chance for new members to feature their business and meet our community. Bring plenty of business cards. It looks as if January will be a fun month with Super Bowl festivities beginning at the end of the month. And what if.... Let's not jinx it! Get out there and enjoy winter in Minnesota. Remember, in the words of Elsa, "The cold never bothered me anyway!"

New Look for our North Loop Space!

Thank you for all of your patience during the Union Plaza remodel. We were excited to show off our finished product at our holiday luncheon on Dec. 17 and loved hearing the positive reviews on the upgrades, including the added lighting and expanded CoWorking space. If you haven't seen it yet, make sure to put it on your 2018 to-do list!
Experience The Bold North!

There's more to do this winter than ever before! Aside from the usual outdoor activities like skiing, snowboarding
or tubing, you can also check-out these events! See  ice castles in Stillwater, watch the Crashed Ice Finals in St. Paul or attend a hockey game on Minnesota Hockey Day or during the U.S Pond Hockey Championships. This year is also the 132nd celebration of the St. Paul Winter Carnival, featuring the people's ice palace in heart of Rice Park. And, in case you haven't heard, there will be a little football game in Minneapolis too. The Super Bowl is more than a game; it's an experience that will introduce millions of visitors from around the globe to not just our state, but our state of mind that says, "T he cold never bothered US anyway!"
Thank you to all of our members that donated
to our OneCommuity Partner
Hats & Mittens this holiday season. Together we collected more than 300 sets to keep the heads, hands and hearts warm of kids throughout our state.
Once again, OffiCenters helped Christmas in the City, a OneCommunity partner, provide families in need a joyous holiday. Adopted families received a holiday meal, Christmas tree and gifts to open. We were happy to help make Xmas wishes a reality.
